Say What Washington Times

Thanks for not blocking the GEO CODE.

Just a few things about this that bug me...

Where's this supposed selfie?

Sounds like a bad idea to let ISIL know how Air Combat Command are getting their intel, no matter how stupid it makes ISIL appear. Think ENIGMA here.

Sounds like a great way for ISIL to set up traps and resource-wasting missions.

Snaggy, I too have questions. No I have not seen the selfie and its date stamp. How long ago did this occur.

I do know that the reason the U-505 was captured was a submariner pillow talked to a French Lady of The Evening, so that the allies knew when and where it was going.

I do not know how to find the recruting websites that ISIL uses to find fresh meat.

News from next week...

Drone strike wipes out a friendly police/army base, or an orphanage, or a UN hospital, because ISIL posted a 'selfie' with forged geocode info.

Ouch! Can't we read that NEXT week?
I'm so ready for this stuff to end. But it seems the human condition does not allow for that. There's always going to be some group of morons somewhere who have to cause intensive bloodshed and misery over some invisible being who supposedly told them to do so.

Why not teach people to "just say no" to invisible beings when they demand that you kill others." See if it makes the invisible being mad enough to show itself. Better still, say "no; and what are you going to do about it, Invisible Being?"

Of course, we know exactly what Invisible Being will do: it will tell some even dumber group to do the same thing, and by the way, also kill the last group who said "No." It just doesn't work until EVERYONE agrees: say "NO" to all invisible beings who demand that you kill everyone they're angry with.

Starting here:

Nicely said, Shooshie. [Big Grin]

What really gets my goat is the two sects of one given religion (which is obviously better than other religions and merits fighting those who have a different affiliation to the death) are killing each other because the other's branch of the *same religion* is 'thoroughly wrong.' This stuff is beyond messed up.
